Since its inception in 1971, the Bull and Bush pub has been offering patrons a cozy place to drink in an authentic London atmosphere.

Each emulates the finest intoxicating flavors Great Britain has to offer. To complement the beer, you can order the standard pub grub, including burgers, sandwiches and wings. But the highlight of the menu is definitely the fish and chips. Call ahead or check the website for more.

The word "pub" is thrown around any American bar that wants to seem a bit cooler than others with minimal regard for what a true pub actually is. The Pub on Pearl is a rare exception to this rule; while still not a true British pub, it is much more than just a bar with a kitschy name. Located on the corner of the original South Pearl district just off I-25, Pub on Pearl is a large, spacious bar with lots of comfortable couches and booths in addition to the bar stools and tables, catchy indie and local music with the occasional live acts, and events such as poker night on Wednesdays. The drink selection is affordable but nothing special and the food is typical bar fare, but Pub on Pearl is mostly about the social experience. Stop by on a sports game day for a welcoming and hysterically good time. - Sabrina Zirakzadeh
